    hmm that new palm zire 31 is looking pretty attractive. however, i'm pretty sold on the address book and calender apps of Mac os X. i would seriously think about getting one of those palm things if i didn't have to switch scheduling and contacts programs on my computer, but i have a feeling they make it a pain to use anything other than their own software. but palm has been around for a while, there should be some experience with this. does anyone use a palm PDA with their Mac? can it be jury-rigged so that calender and address book can be synced up with the palm PDA and vise versa?

    I bought a new Palm Tungsten E a month or two ago, and it workes flawlessly with iSync. It shows up in iSync without a problem. I sync my address book and calendar(ical), I do not use any of the Palm Desktop Software, Palms software has a built in address book and calendar as well but you do not have to use it I dont. I use the built in OSX apps.

    Also you can buy a 3rd part app that can sync with iPhoto and iTunes for you Palm O/S handheld,

    let me know if you need any more info.
